Authentic Brick From St. Valentines Day Massacre Wall:
St Valentines Day Massacre February 14th, 1929 soon to be reach 90 years of being the most infamous historical gangster event in our country.
As we approach the 90th anniversary of the St. Valentines Day Massacre on February 14th, 1929 when Al Capone, while visiting Florida, ordered the hit on 'Bugs' Moran head of the North Side gang in Chicago. The event occurred in a garage in Chicago on North Clark street and became a historical attraction for tourists and locals. In an effort to remove the memories of this panful infamous event Mayor Daley Senior of Chicago put the wall up for sale. My uncle George Patey heard the news on the radio in Vancouver British Columbia and purchased the wall at sale. He carefully numbered each brick in its original structure and dismantled the wall one brick at a time packing it into 7 coffee crates to ship. The history of the bricks has been carefully documented to maintain authenticity and today the majority of the St. Valentines Day Wall has been reconstructed in the Mob Museum in Las Vegas, Nevada.
My uncle and I shared a fascination with the gangster history and I ultimately received the Wall once he passed. I am offering this brick for sale as we approach the 90th anniversary of this infamous event to give the opportunity to a serious collector who may want to own one of the last authenticated bricks as a piece of history that marks an error that had a tremendous impact on prohibition in the early 20's.
THIS BRICK IT IS A COLLECTABLE AND THEREFORE, IT WILL NOT BE REFUNDABLE AS I CANNOT RISK ANY POTENTIAL DAMAGE.
